    Even done some exercise too.. Trying to take my mind off me nan having emergency surgery so the exercise occupied my mind well. Today has been a good day!

    I'm afraid I overdosed on the Posh ones. Had them too many days in a row.
    Sad really, because I was on a packet a day, for lunch at work.
    And I was losing weight faster then than since I stopped (stopped the scratchings, and the weight loss. Lol)

    Hope it goes OK for your nan!

    What recipe did you use for the kale?
    I tip a tablespoon of oil in a bowl, mix in a heaped teasp of Pataks curry paste, a good pinch of salt, then I toss in the kale and gently massage it till the leaves are thinly covered. Then bake.
    Voila! Curried crisps.

    You can do the curried oil for onion rings too (lowest oven setting possible, bake till dried out).
    They are lush.

    :)

    Thanks Susi :). My friend sometimes buya more than she can get thru and gives me what she doesn't use as she doesn't like them cooked. If I can freeze raw will be far easier for me than cooking them all at once then portioning to freeze.

    I find mushrooms and eggs always seems to be something "missing" and the only thing that ever seems to make it "complete" is some cooked tomato.

    I never did try umami as interesting as it first sounded because somewhere along the line it mentioned it being monosodium glutamate..... :(. Still love your version of chia seed pud....scrummy but I use less sweetener....

    I like to fry mine in butter and then sprinkle with turmeric. This is lovely, however, I love turmeric, if you don't it might not work for you;)

    Breakfast: Greek yoghurt with sunflower seeds and hazelnuts. Tea with cream. 3 homemade Ginger Almond biscuits - only 1 carb each:)

    Lunch: unusually for me I didn't feel at all hungry so just ate some more yoghurt with a chopped kiwi fruit.

    Dinner: lamb's liver with onions and mushrooms in gravy. Cauliflower Mash with butter. I was very hungry and only realised later when I did the maths that I ate 9 carbs of onion and 9 carbs of cauli Why do onions have to have so many carbs??? Darn root veg!

    2 more ginger biscuits. Tea with cream.

    A total of 45 grams of carb so under my 50 grams per day target.

    I ate a portion of cauli mash the size of a small mountain as I am a greedy guts the 'gravy' was just a beef stock cube dissolved in hot water and added to the liver and onions in the pan. As I shared the dish with my boyfriend I consumed less than half a beef stock cube so I didn't carb count for it. Do people include stock cubes in their carb counts?

    I had an unusual spike to 8.5 last night and that upset me as I had not had anything our of the ordinary. Also, I had hoped that my test strips would have arrived in today's post, alas no. Therefore I am being very cautious today, eggs for breakfast, cheese salad for lunch (all green salad) and likely have broccoli and cauliflower for tea.

    To me the onion and cauli being 9 carbs each is really quite low but I guess it depends on what daily limit you are giving yourself...

    Maybe the 8.5 was a rogue reading .... dodgy strip, dirty hands etc... I guess if you are short of strips you wouldn't have retested
